Spring is around the corner, and one big must-do entails tossing the old stuff to make space for the new. It’s time for spring cleaning, but how to declutter your home? Although spring cleaning may be somewhat overwhelming, we’re here to help you. So if you’re lost at sea, here is what to consider during the big clean-out.
Clean out your closet
The first step is to declutter your wardrobe for the big spring cleaning. Make a point of trying on those clothes you never wear. Still not going to wear them? Consider donating, recycling, or selling what you don’t wear.
Check those random things you are keeping for unclear reasons
Collecting notebooks or keeping used tins to make some decoupage project is one thing, but keeping old scraps of illegible paper from your university years is just filling your space with noise. Be brave; it’s time for spring cleaning. Get rid of all the useless stuff, and quit hoarding, that’s how to declutter your home.
Consider spreading the book love during spring cleaning
If you have some books that you’ve read several times, and you wouldn’t mind some extra space, it might be a good idea to donate them. Spreading the love of reading is how you declutter your bookshelves!
What about those knick-knacks you actually hate?
Bad gifts kept on a shelf to collect dust and knick-knacks you bought on a whim? Well, those too, might go during spring cleaning. Make space for that piece of decor you’ve been saving for, and avoid overcrowded surfaces by simply being honest with yourself.
Is it time to change your (very) old furniture?
Spring cleaning might be the perfect time to declutter and get some new piece of furniture. If your couch has a broken spring or two or woodworms are devouring your table, it might be time for a trip to Ikea (after one to the dumpster).
New season, new life!
